Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today, January 16, we, as a nation, remember the life of Martin Luther King, Jr.-husband, father, son, dreamer who had such hope that the issue of race would be put to rest in this country where we profess that all men are created equal.  Those of us who are older remember the unrest in America after he was murdered-his dream and those of his friends shattered by a bullet. I was living in Washington, DC at that time and with my Ursuline Sisters, watched as whole neighborhoods were destroyed in the riots.  The race problem in this country has not been solved and we as Christians should pray for equality each day.  The challenge is before us each day and hopefully, we will rise to the challenge by standing next to our brothers and sisters who are denied their God given rights.
